Thanks kbrison.  Smiley  I love my little niece to bits!  Smiley  I don't think your Cricut can cut felt, though the new one (Explore) is supposed to.  I'm going to wait and see how much people like/dislike it before getting one.  My sis had a Cameo so I'm waiting for her to figure out to use it.  Smiley

Haha!  Can I come over to your place too?  I wanna look at all of your stamps!  I like to collect stuff as well, including an embroidery machine that I haven't even tried to turn on yet.  Luckdragon inspired me to finally try my Yudu after I'd had it for 4 years and now I LOVE it. I'm in the process of screening more tees for people at work and once that's done I have 2 tees that I absolutely need to make.  And I have been doing more papercrafting recently.  LOL.  So there is hope for me to one day get to everything I have planned. I really want to get that embroidery machine running at some point.  I've been collecting Urban Thread designs like crazy and would love to finally stitch up something.

The same here I got my embroidery machine  for Christmas a year ago, have stocked up on patterns from Urban Threads about 200.00 worth of patterns just sitting there never used and the machine.  I just bought a Go Baby Go last weekend and did manage to take it out of the box and cut a few things.  I have a cricut I use on occasions, a brand new embossing machine that I have never used along with about 200 stamps most never used, 2 sewing machines, a serger never used,  same book binder mentioned above also brand new, a quilling kit and tons of precut paper unopened and then there's all the scrapbook paper, fabric beading, supplies,buttons a band sew, just bought a table saw to cut birch limbs for my Christmas tag partner,  I also have a bias cutter new unopened, resin supplies never used either, pasta machine and all the oven bake goodies, I am hoarding now for when I can retire is what I keep telling myself!!!

lol that is what I am going to do...save all the stuff for retirement!

I think those of us who are using our embroidery machines as door stops need to challenge each other to do at least one machine embroidery in March!!!  Who is up for it?

Great idea.  We should probably start a discussion over in machine embroidery. I will do what I can to hold your hands and help you along.  You can't let those UT designs go to waste!!! 

Besides, it sounds like you doorstoppers won't have any trouble finding something else to stop the door!

I just think I get excited to try new things and just don't have enough time for them...

UMMMM I'm guilty of this too..... Here's my list of tools that I HAD to have - some I use, some are used as doorstops ....
sewing machine, serger, 2 embroidery only machines, snap press, Pazzles creative cutter, book binding machine that collects dust, professional button maker that never gets used, 4 Xyron machines of various size, 6 paper cutters - all various shapes and sizes, over 60 various shapes of Wilton baking cake pans, 30 molds for crayon making, leather burning tool, embossing tool, 3 hot fix tools, over 100 stamp sets that sit unused, and there's probably more but I can't think of all of it right now .....

Ok, for all you people who have equipment that is still sitting in the box, I have been reading along with this thread for awhile and i agree with Wagonswest.  It's time to dust off the the doorstoppers and get going.  I would love a bookbinder or a new set of carving tools, or any of the other long list of items that you all have.  I'm hoping to see some new awesome craftiness here in the next few weeks.

Hear! Hear! 

Always... I will donate a suitable prize for a challenge wherein craftsters have to make something using a tool (or supply) that hasn't been used (ever or for a really long time).

Sorry,  My machine isn't a door stop.  Just ask Mike the repair guy who always comments on the insane number of stitches I have.  Now if some one else has a doorstop to donate that would be a different matter!

Had to attend a meeting this evening and came back to three pages of reactions. Lindy, Rockmygypsysoul, UTM, Waggons, Yoopi, and SilverMoon, sounds like I need to build a VERY large guest house, but you all would be very, very welcome to come play with me in my craft room. And Lindy, you need to bring your kids. I adore kids who like reading. And Lana would have to come, too, UTM! My maternal grandfather was born in STL and my siblings live in central Illinois, so I've spent a lot of time in the STL area, Waggons. Not too bad a drive to my house from there.Yoopi, I'd love to come to Oahu. My eldest daughter was there when she was 12 (GS trip), but the closest I got was being an alternate sponsor for the trip. Of course none of the other adults had to withdraw. Shucks! And Australia is on my bucket list, Silver. When my younger daughter was in middle school, our GS troop began planning a final trip for the year they graduated from high school. The girls narrowed it down to Europe or Australia. Harry Potter was the deciding factor; Diagon Alley it was. (We did get to see the Queen though at the final London performance of My Fair Lady.)

lol that is what I am going to do...save all the stuff for retirement!

I think those of us who are using our embroidery machines as door stops need to challenge each other to do at least one machine embroidery in March!!!  Who is up for it?

I think I'm going to make my retirement official in April, so maybe I'll be able to do more crafting then. And I'd be in for the challenge. I really do need to use my embroidery machine.

Here's my list of tools:)

1)Sewing machine - Christmas 2011 gift Smiley Used ALMOST daily
2)Cricut machine - Christmas 2009 gift - haven't used since the summer, kind of got bored after 600 event invitations
3)Serger - Christmas 2013 gift Smiley Used ALMOST daily
4)Knitting loom set - not used since 2011 when my sil and I went a little nuts with it before taking up crochet
5)crochet hooks - complete set
6)wood burner - missing in a box somewhere
7)crayon maker - never used
8)Shrinky dink maker - never used
9)I had a blender but my nieces and I killed it at Christmas making paper bowls and tags
10)Knitting pal

So I guess I'll be dusting off the crayon maker, shrink dink maker, and the knitting pal within the next 6 weeks.

Looking for Sophia the first fabric and Frozen fabric (preferably flannel, but would settle for cotton) and Phoomph.  I'm in Canada and the companies are that I could order from charge $20-$30 shipping, so if anybody can find some and wants to swap/sell, I would be eternally greatfull.
